Precision Warfare and the Case for Symmetry: Targeted Killings and Hostage Taking

Abstract

Book abstract: Today's warfare has moved away from being an event between massed national populations and toward small numbers of combatants using high-tech weaponry. The editors of and contributors to the timely collection Transformations of Warfare in the Contemporary World show that this shift reflects changes in the technological, strategic, ideological, and ethical realms.
